RUSH: You gotta hear this. We’ve put together a great montage. Dick Cheney, our hero, was on Larry King Alive last night, and Larry asked questions that were written for him, and Cheney answered in the way that only Cheney can. This is a condensed version as a montage, but this is fabulous.

KING: Don’t you ever say, maybe I’m wrong?


KING: In retrospect, you would still go into Iraq?

CHENEY: Yes, sir.

KING: So those 3,000-plus lives have not died in vain?

CHENEY: No, sir.

KING: Does it pain you when Brent Scowcroft says, ‘This is not the Dick Cheney I knew’?

CHENEY: Not especially.

KING: Wouldn’t you like to be liked?

CHENEY: Well, up to a point. Remember, success for a politician is 50% plus one. You don’t have to have everybody on board.

KING: You said that the Iraqis were well on their way to being able to defend themselves. Why aren’t we gone?

CHENEY: They’re not there yet because the job is not done yet, Larry.

KING: Does it bother you that the Iraqi parliament is taking August off?

CHENEY: It’s better than taking two months off.

KING: Is General Petreus the be-all and end-all?

CHENEY: General Petraeus is a very impressive officer.

KING: Alberto Gonzales, do you stand by him?


KING: You stand by him?

CHENEY: Yes, sir.

KING: No doubt about that?

CHENEY: Correct.

KING: The Scooter Libby trial, did it pain you?


KING: General Powell says he’d close Guantanamo yesterday. Would you?


KING: Do you have to torture them over there?

CHENEY: We don’t do torture.

KING: What are you going to do in February ’09?

CHENEY: I have no idea.

KING: And as Yogi said, it ain’t over ’til it’s over.

CHENEY: It ain’t over ’til it’s over, that’s right.

RUSH: Is that not fabulous? (Laughing) Oh, we love this guy here.
